What is a DVR

 

This paragraph is about what a DVR is.  According to wikianswers.com A DVR stands for Digital Video Recorder. A DVR instead of using tapes like a VCR it uses a hard disk like the one in your computer.  I think the DVR is so cool it can record and pause TV and thatÕs not all it can do it can even skip the commercials IÕm sure there is more it can do it would just take to long to tell you besides there is more stuff for me to tell you about the DVR.

 

This paragraph is about what is special about a DVR. According to Jonathan Strickland There are lots of things that are special about a DVR, some of them are DVRs are tape less so you don't need to worry about tapes, if you have a certain smartphone app then you can call your T.V. and tell it to record a show and you can watch the show while it is recording. I think it is so cool that you can record a show with your DVR by using your phone.

 

This paragraph is about the benefits of the DVR.  According to msu.edu.com One of the benefits of the DVR are it upgrades your T.V. without having to buy a new one. I think it is so cool that a DVR upgrades your TV for you that makes me want to get a DVR even more.

 

DVR History

This paragraph is about why you should use a DVR instead of a VCR.  According to Sal Prince There are lots of reasons why I should use a VCR instead, one of them is when you use a VCR you can only record one thing at a time but when you use a DVR you can record two show at a time. I think it is so cool that if you use a DVR you can record two shows at a time. Now if I need to record two shows I can record both of them at a time instead of missing one.

 

How Does a DVR Work

This paragraph is about how easy it is to use a DVR.  According to Matthew Torres All the features are inside. So you don't half to worry about all the hook-ups and when you need to walk out of the room then you can pause the T.V. and you won't miss anything. I think it is good that it is pretty easy to use a DVR and that all the hook-ups are inside so you donÕt have to worry about that.

 

Cool Stuff About the DVR
